Chariot races

In the past, Chinley Scouts were well known in the local area for hosting an annual chariot race.  The chariots were wheeled go-karts and each team was allowed one driver and two others who pushed or pulled the kart around the route.

Apparently Chinley was the place to be and people came from all over the area to take part and watch the races.  Unfortunately the annual event eventually became a victim of its own success and was discontinued in the 1990’s because of disruption from visitors.

The info below shows a newspaper cutting from one of the last years it ran.  We are currently looking into resurecting the annual event and would be pleased to hear from anyone who would be willing to help organise it.
